Re-order Mega Menu / Navigation in Wordpress

Created by Liam Dye, Modified on Fri, 29 Sep, 2023 at 4:13 PM by Liam Dye

When you've created your menu and categories to go in the menu, you may in the future wish to re-order these and this can be done by logging in to your Wordpress account and navigating to the home page. 

At the top you will then see 'Edit with Elementor' (will only be visible if logged in to your Wordpress account)

You will then be shown the homepage but also have the ability to edit this as seen below

We don't actually want to edit the Website, but we do want to edit the Menu. When you hover over the menu the editor will show 'Edit Header' . We need to click on this to be able to edit the Header/Menu section.

Once clicked on, click anywhere in the area marked with the pink outline.

Over on the left hand side, we will now see the Menu Items that are visible

You could add new items, delete or simply drag and drop the current menu items to re-order them. If you do make a change at this stage, you must remember to click on Publish/Update which will either be in the bottom left hand corner or top right hand corner.

In this example however we are going to re-order the categories in the dropdown under 'Solutions' by clicking on 'Solutions'

We are now able to see our sub-menus and by clicking on any of the lists, we will see this new list on the left hand side like we did for the main menu items. 

If we want to move Case Studies to the be at the top of the sub-menu, we would simply drag the Item on the left hand side to the top of the list. 

We can now see the Menu item of Case Studies is now at the top of the list. Again, all we need to do now is click on Publish/Update and this will re-order that list! (in our example below, the publish button is in the top right hand corner.
